It has been such a pleasure being a patient of Dr. Beckenstein and his wonderful staff. I am 6 months out from surgery and could not have asked for better results. My area of concern posed a challenge. Prior to choosing Dr. Beckenstein I consulted with several surgeons, but never felt confident in going forward. After meeting with him I was certain he would be the best surgeon to handle my situation. I would recommend Dr. Beckenstein to anyone looking for a surgeon with compassion and expertise.
Dr Beckenstein showed amazing compassion to me and three other women with breast cancer. His father passed away and Dr Beckenstein was in NY when it happened. He flew back that night because he had four of us on his surgery schedule and he took care of us. He made sure we were alright the next day and he went back to NY for the funeral. dr Beckenstein could have stayed up in NY, but he honored his commitment to me. I cannot say how much that meant to me. He is compassionate and dedicated to his patients. I don't know of any other doctor who would have done this. Besides this, he did an amazing thing for me as far as my reconstruction. His staff is great too.
